Toporkestra Balkan Party
The spontaneous Gypsy-punk-panic-band Toporkestra is the merriest, wildest, most innocently rowdy musical hurricane on the planet! It picks up and twirls everything in its way, leaving only boundless happiness in the heart and soul! Gypsies, moldovans, trombones and bears will wake up everyone and get them dancing to Gypsy and Romanian music. Special treat of the evening – homemade wine, contraband from Moldova, a heavenly drink!

The Correspondents: An extraordinary electro swing duet from London
Mr. Bruce (vocals) and Chucks (Dj), fresh from entertaining audiences at the most famous music festival Glastonbury for yet another year in a row, are coming to Odessa! It would be reasonable to say that we are tremendously fortunate to receive musicians of such level in our city. The band has performed in Plyazhnik before and their show compelled everyone to kick up their heels and dance. Lovers of true high quality music can’t miss this event!
